This folder contains 'Action Photos' with informational captions arranged on oversize poster boards. These photos showcase the work of various state agencies, circa 1930, including the state teachers colleges. Subjects of the photos include state buildings, grounds, agency personnel, and equipment. These action photo boards were created during the Great Depression, and because the records are Department of Finance records, one can assume that the state agencies featured in the photographs would want to look their best as they justified their existence and fought for their share of funds from the state budget.
